The ingredients of a Rhino horn can cure cancer, improve libido, in fact, improve just about any and every aspect of health.
Science says otherwise of course, the substance it's made from, keratin, is the same stuff that our fingernails are made of.
Of course science doesn't matter, what matters are people's beliefs, and if people say Rhino horn is the elixir for life, then rhino's should be shot to extinction, as long as man can get his health fix.
Christians who laugh or sneer or are contemptuous of the voracious demand for Rhino horn in Asia ought to consider that atheists hold their beliefs in equally low regard. After all, a man nailed to a tree is supposed to give us fruits that will allow us to live after we die, even meet up with our death relatives. Here the magic ingredient is blood, which apparently washes away the world's sin. Science isn't quite sure what sin is, but Christian's are pretty clear on it, and confident they have the cure. Just like Rhino horn.
